Wild Wonders Preschool is a unique program that brings the natural world alive!  Offered for ten consecutive Mondays each fall and spring, we will connect children with nature by encouraging their natural affinity for nature.  By developing their sense of place in the world over the ten weeks, this will allows us to provide a continuous theme, deeper learning, and foster relationships between teacher, students, and the animals.

Throughout this exciting program, children will explore the many wonders of nature first-hand through dramatic play, art, stories, songs and animal encounters! The fall session will focus on the many ways animals get ready for winter and the spring session will focus on our domestic animal friends at the Wells Fargo Family Farm.

Ages: 3 or 4 years old by September 1, 2016 or in Kindergarten AND children must be group ready to participate: this includes the ability to listen and follow directions, remain with the group at all times, follow safety rules independently, and communicate with the instructor.  All children must also be toilet trained.

Get face to face with kangaroos and wallabies! For a limited time, hop on over to the Minnesota Zoo for an exclusive, small-group experience with our Australia zookeepers, a Zoo naturalist, and the real stars of the show – the marsupials themselves. Experience Kangaroo Crossing in the morning light, before the Zoo opens to the public.  You’ll walk through mobs of marsupials, go behind-the-scenes, get hands-on as you feed a kangaroo (based on the animal’s choice to participate), and help the keepers put the animals out on exhibit. You’ll leave with new knowledge and new stories to tell!

Date: offered on select Saturdays and Sundays, June-October
Age: minimum 4 years old, participants younger than 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult
